In times past, natural disasters were few and far between. Not anymore. These days, natural disasters do not only occur more frequently, they are more devastating in their scope of destruction. There is virtually no country in the world that is immune. We no longer doubt if disasters will occur. We now expect them to and wonder where next? These disasters can manifest in form of earthquakes, tornadoes, wild fires, floods and tsunamis. What they all have in common if and whenever they occur is widespread destruction to lives and properties.
In 2012 alone, many Americans were hit by the Colorado wild fires, tropical storm Debby and a record heat wave. Mother Nature's fury has been visited on many other countries quite a bit all these years. There is hardly any week now that one natural disaster or the other will not occur somewhere in the world. Because we can not stop natural disasters, we can at best prepare very well for them. If scientists are to be believed, we should all brace up for more disasters in the years ahead. Even though an earthquake, fire or a flood may not have destroyed your home yet, you can not be sure whether the very next one will not hit your area. Because of that, it is very important to plan for how you can protect yourself, your family and your properties. Here are some of the smartest ways you can prepare for an event you hope will never happen.
